Faster Ruby, JS and Other Languages Using Graal and Truffle



Chris Seaton talks about Graal, Oracle Labs' new JIT compiler written in Java, making development on it easier and so enabling new research into optimisations; and Truffle, a framework for implementing languages that uses Graal. Oracle Labs' implementation of JavaScript is competitive with Google’s V8.


Dr. Chris Seaton is a Research Manager at the Virtual Machine Group in Oracle Labs, where he leads the work to implement Ruby using the next generation of Java Virtual Machine technology, and other projects.
